What are the Best FHD Display Mobiles, and Why You Should Buy One?
Updated On – Feb 2021 – The Full HD (1920*1080) resolution is the most optimal resolution you can have on your next smartphone. Recently, a lot of phones are also coming with the FHD+ (2400*1080) resolution with either a 20:9 aspect ratio or a 19:9 aspect ratio (2340*1080).
Most of the phones in the range of Rs. 7,000 to 10,000 have HD (1280*720) resolution. The phones over 10K are likely to have an FHD display.
Whereas the latest flagship phones like Samsung Galaxy S20, Oneplus 8 Pro, or Google Pixel 4 XL have either 2K ( 2880*1440) or higher resolution.
Does HD, Full HD, or 2K resolution make a difference?
Understanding FHD Display – The full HD resolution has more pixels per inch compared to an HD or lower resolution display. A 5.5-inch phone with HD display will have 267 PPI (Pixels per Inch), on the other hand, a Full HD mobile (with the same screen size) will have 400 Pixels per Inch (PPI). Further, a 2K+ (2880*1440 pixels) smartphone display will have 586 PPI.
Better the pixels per inch, better is the text readability, video, image clarity. However, beyond 400 PPI difference is less noticeable.
Lots of experts say an HD screen is enough or an FHD is enough, and the human eye can’t differentiate. There are counter views to this theory, which means that high-resolution displays are easier to read and text appears more clear. Also, there is no pixelation of text/images on higher resolution screens.
Is FHD Better Compared to HD? In my opinion, after using all three resolution on a mobile, the full HD looks better than the HD, and 2K make it a grade higher.
However, the Full HD resolution is recommended, the reading experience between a good quality FHD screen and a 2K screen is not that much for 5-6 inch phones. In the case of large-size monitors and TV’s differences are more noticeable.
But at the same time, there is no match for the Quad HD Displays used in phones like LG G7 ThinQ and Samsung Note 10. These come with much superior display panels that offer higher resolution, brightness, contrast, and very accurate color profile.
Below Table Shows How Pixel Density Changes with Resolution for a 5.5 Inch Screen Size Mobile.
|Screen Size||Resolution||Pixels||Pixel Per Inch|
|5.5 Inch||HD||1280*720||267 PPI|
|5.5 Inch||FHD||1920*1080||400 PPI|
|5.5 Inch||FHD+||2160*1080||440 PPI|
|5.5 Inch||Quad HD+||2880*1440||586 PPI|
|5.5 Inch||4K||3880*2160||801 PPI|
I don’t buy the crap shared by many so-called researchers about the human eye can’t detect the difference between HD Vs. FHD or 2K display, my human eye can.
While moving from an HD or lower resolution to FHD, you will find your reading experience becomes much better.
